Why not try this lovely nutty, chocolate twist on the classic bread and butter pudding, made with no added sugar.
When I set up Make Me Sugar Free one of the main objectives was to show people there is a way to cut out sugar and still eat mouthwatering delicious ‘treats’ that are made with wholesome and healthy ingredients. I wanted to recreate my favourite foods that are fortifying instead of the sugar laden fake-foods.
Here is one of those favs. Nothing screams comfort dessert more than a bread & butter pudding. And we know that Nutella tops the toast topper chart! So here’s a dessert that combines the two and is made using nothing but delicious, healthy, wholesome ingredients.
This is a mini portion tat serves two people, it’s super filling and hits the sweet spot perfectly.
This hazelnut chocolate bread & butter pudding will ease you in to the winter months & make the short, dark evenings cosy & delicious!
So simple to make - here goes:
3 small slices slightly stale sourdough bread
30g soft butter
2 bananas mashed
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa & cacao powder
Handful hazelnuts (toasted)
1 tin full fat coconut milk
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
First up butter your sourdough, cut in to quarters. Put half the bread in to a dish.
Next mash up one banana and top the bread in the dish. Then sprinkle with a tbsp if cacao & cocoa powder half and half (it will be too bitter if just cacoa)
In a heavy bottomed pan toast your hazelnuts.
Once toasted crush them with the back of a spoon so they’re broken up.
Add to the bread & banana.
In a processor add the 2 eggs, dates, banana, coconut milk, nutmeg & cinnamon. Whiz until well combined.
Then pour half over the hazelnuts, keeping half back.
Next add another layer of buttered bread, more custard mix and top with hazelnuts and cacao.
Pop in the oven for 25 mins on 180 and there you have it a gorgeous, yummy, refined sugarfree delicious hazelnut chocolate bread & butter pudding.
